Winking Valentine

No body in sight
but the head of a lizard
appeared on the patio
this morning upside
down with its pearly
underjaw giving it
the look of a small
oval stone when I first
noticed it and wondered
how it got there went
to pick it up or tried but
it was stuck to the cement
so I grab the spade and
carried it to the compost
for a proper burial
but on the way I swear
the sun glinting in its eye
it winked at me
knowing I’d soon be there
